Thoughts on so many companies offering Q9450 and Q9300 for Pre-Order?

I searched Froogle.com and there are literally a hundered companies offering the Q9300 and Q9450 for pre-order with many stating 1 to 2 week delivery. I know that I had read that Intel was going to delay the Quads until possibly March. What are your thoughts on this? Has anyone confirmed a delay? I glanced through the forum and searched for "Preorder" and "Pre-Order" and saw nothing of "current" substance.

Really shipping in January or companies milking you for money now, regardless of when they're shipping?

As far as I know, Intel themselves still haven't confirmed the delay. We've just read bribes of speculation and rumors that many professional reviewing/previewing/news-reporting sites have told. If Intel did confirmed it, then I must have missed the announcement.

They'd take pre-orders for Nehalem parts if they could get away with it. It doesn't appear like they have any clue as to what's really going on.
